Ennerdale Valley is the home to the Ennerdale Forest and Ennerdale Lake. This is a more quiet escape from some of the more busier places in the Lake District.

The forest is over 20 miles of forest roads, providing lovely walks in between the trees starting from Ennerdale village. Some of these paths lead you high up the valley where great views of Wasdale and Buttermere can be seen. If you're interested in something a bit more adventurous, try mountain biking in this brilliant area which provides challenging and exciting routes through the trees and on interesting terrain. Or alternatively many of the same routes are open to horse riders.
